A new record!

In view of last week’s discussion on numbers of Glens at shows this is very illustrative. A question has arrived regarding the entry for the 2011 Finnish Glen of Imaal Terrier Show; is the record broken? There are 67 Glens entered and so the record has now gone. Congratulations Finland!!

The request was made here because, as far as anybody knows, the record was created in the UK. Back in 1989, yes 22 years ago, 56 Glen of Imaal Terriers made 98 entries for judge George Campbell. There were 10 in Open Dog & 13 in Open Bitch. 11 trophies were on offer with extra awards for Best Dog, Bitch & Veteran. Rosettes and prizes were offered for the first to fifth in each class and to finish the bonanza, money (£10.00 for Best In Show) specials for the top winners was also offered.
